German death metal maniacs DAWN OF DISEASE have let us in on details of their upcoming new album. Ascension Gate is scheduled to be released on August 11, 2017, via Napalm Records. Get more details including cover design, track listing and more down below.
From The Press Release
Since 2003 DAWN OF DISEASE has rumbled their way to the top as heavyweights of Germany’s Death Metal scene. Hailing from Osnabrück, DAWN OF DISEASE indulge some old school Swedish groove and raspy riffs: Bloodbath and At The Gates provide modern inspiration for aural inclinations of the band. However, their newest production won’t enjoy the well-tried manginess of long forgotten Death Metal days: The brand new album titled Ascension Gate goes a different way with enthralling guitar work, enchanting management of melodies and brilliant tone. A hurricane of blast beat drumming and the gigantic voice of Tomasz Wisniewski spark a fire that forges their spirit.
Now DAWN OF DISEASE unveil the first and hotly anticipated details about their upcoming fourth studio album Ascension Gate, which is set to be released on August 11, 2017, with Napalm Records! The album will be available in CD, LP Gatefold, and Digital Download formats. Pre-orders will be available soon.
Says the band: “Ascension Gate was created and given birth within a comparatively short lapse of time. Thus it embodies pure energy and raw intensity. In comparison to our former releases our fourth full-length album is different in many ways as it modifies and expanses the musical elements we used to employ before. Besides the typical Dawn of Disease trademarks you will find more elaborate melodies that carry the listener through an atmospheric journey. Inspired by gloomy autumn days and the sheer endless darkness of winter ‘Ascension Gate’ adds more depth and catchiness to our sound than ever before without neglecting a huge portion of blast beating brutality. Regardless of this dark and melancholic leitmotif, we can promise you one thing: ‘Ascension Gate’ will bring you a very hot summer!”
The Track Listing of Ascension Gate Reads As Follows:
03. Leprous Thoughts
04. Beneath The Waters
05. Ascension Gate
07. Fleshless Journey
08. The Growing Emptiness
10. Mundus Inversus
After monstrous records such as ‘Legends Of Brutality’, ‘Crypts Of The Unrotten’ and most recently their epic ‘Worship The Grave’ released just last year, DAWN OF DISEASE set a new standard for the expanding Swedish Death Metal scene with Ascension Gate – their fourth hail of bombs full of volatile riff power. This is the new era of modern Death Metal!
